Cha yêu

I cannnot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.
~ Sigmund Freud

Tôi không thể nghĩ ra bất kỳ nhu cầu nào trong thời thơ ấu lớn hơn nhu cầu được cha bảo vệ.

Nơi bán vị vanilla giá rẻ, uy tín, chất lượng nhất?

khó kiếm lắm, giờ đắt hơn bạc rồi
-----
The price of vanilla has hit a record high (cao kỷ lục) of $600 (£445) per kilogram for the second time since 2017 when a cyclone (bão) damaged many of the plantations (vùng trồng) in Madagascar, where three quarters of the world’s vanilla is grown. Silver by comparison currently costs $538/kg.

Demand for vanilla has kept the prices high, leading some ice cream manufacturers to cut back and even halt production of the flavour (vị), sparking fears of shortages over the summer.

Here is the full story, and note this:

Replacement printer ink cartridges can cost between $8 and $27, depending on the type of printer you have. A single black ink jet cartridge (ống mực) from one major manufacturer can cost $23 for just 4ml of ink – enough to print around 200 pages.

Manufacturers argue they need to charge this to cover the loss they are selling the printer hardware at, together with the research and development they do on ink technology. But cut open an ink cartridge and you will see that most of the space inside is taken up with sponge (bọt biển, cao su xốp), designed to help preserve and deliver the ink.

And when you are paying what works out to be around $1,733/kg of ink, you might be better off printing with pure silver instead.

"Big dick energy" nghĩa là gì?

= đường hoàng, tự tin, phóng khoáng, tràn đầy năng lượng... như thể có một cái CUTO.
-----

Big dick energy – you know it when you see it. Not physically – well, not necessarily. It’s an attitude (thái độ). A swagger (dáng điệu nghênh ngang, vênh váo; vẻ đường hoàng tự tin, vẻ phóng khoáng; vẻ bảnh bao, lịch sự). A vibe (sự rung cảm, cảm xúc).

BDE has always been with us, even if we haven’t the phrase to describe it: it’s charisma (uy tín; đức tính gây được lòng tin; sức thu hút/hấp dẫn của người lãnh đạo) and confidence (tự tin), coupled with the ability to almost instantly make other people feel good. In some ways, it’s the opposite of toxic (độc) masculinity (tính chất đàn ông, nam tính).

The Cut described it as “a certain gait (dáng đi, bước đi của ngựa) – sort of like you’ve got a massive dick (cái cu/chim) swinging (lủng lẳng) around – but also a twinkle (tia lấp lánh trong mắt) in the eye, like if you look right at that twinkle you can see a dick swinging in the eye.”

...It will be a great day when the female equivalent is a thing: let’s call it Powerful Vagina  (âm đạo) Energy. When women are celebrated for their feminine power, and when all those beta men out there get recognised for their awesome PVE.
